Poker Players

Poker Players become well known for many reasons. Maybe they have won a major tournament, appeared on televised poker shows, are authors of well read poker books, are legends of poker that have told us many a tale of times gone by or just a darn good player that has earned the respect of their peers in the poker community.

We have researched and interviewed popular players and collated data on their poker career. The result being our Poker Players Database containing detailed written profiles of the poker player and their life stories together with the stats behind their poker career
